Though he was just recently hired to direct Marvel's "Doctor Strange," filmmaker Scott Derrickson is also hopping onboard another project.

Derrickson will reunite with his "Sinister" co-scribe C. Robert Cargill to write a new film adaptation of the classic 1960s sci-fi and horror anthology TV series "The Outer Limits" for MGM.  Derrickson and Cargill will focus on a new take on the classic episode "Demon With a Glass Hand" which Harlan Ellison wrote.

That story follows a man with no memory beyond the last ten days. His left hand has been replaced by an advanced computer shaped like a hand but missing three fingers - fingers that must be reattached before the truth can be revealed.

At the same time the man is being hunted by an alien race who seem him as key to their survival and who have the missing fingers. So begins a deadly hide-and-seek game within a rundown office building sealed off from the world.

Mark Victor is producing. Derrickson will work on the script while he preps "Doctor Strange". He is currently doing press commitments for his upcoming thriller "Deliver Us from Evil".
